Indian runner duck
They lay 200 eggs a year. Their uses are eggs and pest control. They did not originate in India but in the
Indies. The colors they are that I know are:
6 fawn and white
As some examples the welsh harlequin, the khaki Campbell and the Abacot ranger. They are light breeds
that were bred with help from the Indian runner duck. A few organic vineyards use them to eat slugs and
other pests so they wont have to use chemicals. To begin they need a garden area so in unfamiliar territory
they don't run off. They don't wattle like their name says they run. Whne they are relaxed they are flat but
when they want to move at quick speeds they stand up. They are not a broody type of duck even though
they lays so many eggs a year. For several centuries in Asia they would be let out into rice fields to pick
up pests and spilled rice ( I don't know if they do that anymore I apologize for not being able to find out )
They lay white tinted eggs. They lay large eggs. The colors are black, silver grey, cuckoo, dark.
They are pretty good in all climates. They are a large breed. Their comb type is single. Their brooding is
average. They are docile. They are dual purpose. They are endangered. They are good egg

Why you should eat bananas. They are high in many things that you need to be healthy ( chart taken from
Potassium: 9% of the RDI
• Vitamin B6: 33% of the RDI
• Vitamin C: 11% of the RDI
• Magnesium: 8% of the RDI
• Copper: 10% of the RDI
• Manganese: 14% of the RDI
• Net carbs: 24 grams
• Fiber: 3.1 grams
• Protein: 1.3 grams
• Fat: 0.4 grams
They each only have about 105 calories ( medium bananas) . They contain nutrients that moderate blood
sugar levels. After meals they moderate their blood sugar by slowly emptying their stomach.
have few calories and are very nutritious unripe bananas are starchy they have a resistant starch and are
very filling. They are good for heart health many people dint get enough potassium but bananas are high
in them and potassium is essential for your heart. They also contain a good amount of magnesium which
is also very important for the heart. The dopamine in bananas acts as an antioxidant it doesn't cross the
blood barrier it just acts as an antioxidant and doesn't change your hormones or your mood or act as a feel
good chemical. Insulin resistance its a major risk for many of the most dangerous diseases in the world (
which includes type 2 diabetes) bananas might help or rather the unripe ones may help 15-30 grams of
their resistance starch per day just might improve insulin resistance by 33-50% not all studies agree on
this result. Bananas have potassium which is important for the control of blood pressure and for healthy
kidney functions, there are various studies with good results for this. They are good foe exercise they
have good mineral content and easy to digest carbs. They are good in many dishes and easy to buy.
Silkworm ( and moth)
The silkworm ( Bombyx mori ) is used for making silk. They are used because they make their cocoons are made out of a special material that is thin warm strong and water proof because of this the domestic breed ( bombyx mori ) was bred to have theese traits. The wild breed Bombyx mandarania do still exist and are not extinct which if not for you was at least for me was a big relief. The process of making silk is
1. Hatching the eggs
2. feeding the larva mulberry ( best is white)
3. When they make cocoons boiling most of them
4 Weaving the silk into thread which can then be made into cloth,
The silk worm is not a worm but a caterpillar that later hatches into the silk moth. During domestication the domestic silkworm lost their sight, flight, pigments, and lifespan. They were selectivity bred just to reproduce. It takes them 14 days to hatch into larva it takes about 1 month for them to be ready to make the cocoon in this time they well have molted 4 times they will spend 3 days wrapping their cocoon around themselves but if the threads get disturbed they will have to start over again, the silk is atually their spit but hardened, they have a spinneret in their mouth. They spend 3 weeks in their cocoon be fore hatching if their lucky. The cocoons cant be harvested for silk after they hatch because in order to do so they spit a special spit that dissolves the silk.
